Our Services

The Canberra Psychology Centre for Children and Families (CPCCF) is an established and well regarded private psychology practice providing best practice in assessment and therapy. We provide psychological services from the antenatal period through all levels of child and adolescent development – to young adulthood. We also provide therapy to parents, families and adults.

Director, Jo Richardson, is a Clinical Psychologist with over 14 years of experience in working with children and families. Jo co-created CPCCF with the vision of providing the Canberra community with a dedicated Centre for excellence in child and family psychological services.

Our team is comprised of a range of experienced male and female Registered and Clinical psychologists, all with differing areas of expertise and specialisation. Our team work closely together to ensure the provision of the highest standard evidence based psychological services.

We provide a comprehensive range of assessment, diagnostic and therapy services. All of our services are provided using evidence based best practice approaches and gold standard measures. We also assist families to access school and government funded programs.

The Centre has developed a strong reputation within Canberra and surrounding areas – within the general Canberra community, with clients, within the medical community, with schools, and with the allied health professionals that we work collaboratively with.

CPCCF provides assessment and therapy services to the Canberra community and surrounding areas (including Goulburn, Bateman’s Bay and the south coast of NSW, the Snowy Mountains Area, Jindabyne, Cooma, Bombala and Yass).
